That's where the shovel and axe go on an M38. They all have it.
when I was maybe 8, my grand father was still working at the copper factory.
He lived in a house just near the big railway line Paris - Le Mans, lot of trafic...
I was staying at the end of the garden just near the trains, that was terrible.
And The railway was connected to the factory to bring copper ingots.
So one day my grand-father took me for a small travel inside the factory in the small factory train !
It is still my giant souvenir of him, he was technical manager.
He had survived to fights in 1917 combats WWI and was not talking too much.
I also remember that in his office there was many pencils and a huge machine to sharpen pencils, he gave me some and I still have one, swiss pencil for drawing, half blue / half red.
That was around 1954....
Thanks for clarifying.
Itlksez showed us this trick a couple weeks ago. Itwaseasy.
Broken parking brake cable.
cut the hole on the top half about 2x as big. Blasted it with the MiG.
No kidding perfect.
I was going to head to the gas station and then take a picture for the photo scavenger hunt thread and the engine died a few seconds after starting. Huh, I tried starting with no luck. Popped a wire off a plug and no spark. I checked the coil and while it had higher resistance it was still good. After more checking the distributor is dead. Guess I'll fool with this in a few weeks, or months, maybe next year.
Frustrating. Teething problems take so long to get through sometimes.
No please, never stop working on a Jeep, revival is easy... satisfaction at the same time!
After digging through my junk stash I found the old distributor. Cleaned the points and cap then reinstalled everything. All is right with the world again. Please withhold your points rhetoric.
I decided to have a go at lowering my driver seat a bit more. I really didnt want to change the mounting bracket from original so i cut out the bottom of the seat where it mounts and moved it up into the foam probably about 1.25" . It went very well I shouldnt need to slouch anymore. These are from a 80s or 90s dodge work van btw
Not that I actually did anything, but parts are starting to show up. The Vega motor has been officially been condemned, water in the oil, oil on the timing belt etc... On to the 231 swap! I'll keep you posted.
Also, 465 and power steering, Im sure there will be many questions, thanks for all your support. This forum is great!
You should start a build thread when you get going on it.
That's the plan, I may need a little help with that as well as I'm not so tech savvy. I do plan on taking lots of pics though. Thanks. I have a loose goal of making it to Oregon to meet some of you guys, but at this point that is a pretty tall order! Will
Blew a head gasket.
I guess it was just time for me to learn some more Jeep/engine stuff.
Did you get the engine hot?
Any chance you ingested water on that muddy adventure or cleanup from said adventure and it hydraulically blew?
My cooling works well and it did run well after the Mud Day. I don't know why it blew - it was just ready to.
Finding a Gasket kit has been a challenge. Checked all the normal Jeep parts sites and they are "out of stock". a call to Walcks finally found one. Its not on their site, but was on the shelf!
A few parts have started to arrive. I shipped the spindles off to be machined this afternoon. My tapered intermediate shaft/bearings won't be here until next month? A few other things should show up next week. My transfer case is starting to sound like a rock crusher.
